IV Therapy Q & A

What is intravenous infusion therapy?

Intravenous infusion therapy is a far-reaching treatment option with implications for patients suffering from a range of conditions. If you have a chronic health condition, such as multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis, intravenous infusion therapy may slow down the progression of the disease and alleviate your worst symptoms.

Intravenous infusion is the fastest way to administer medication to your entire body. Direct delivery of medication to your circulatory system facilitates distribution throughout your body via its natural delivery system with a highly controlled dosage.

At Chicago Neurological Services, the on-site intravenous infusion facility makes this therapy an easy part of your treatment regimen with Dr. Cohen.

 

How does intravenous infusion therapy work?

Dr. Cohen and his team understand the concerns you may have when coming to the office for IV therapy and work closely with you to establish a trusting patient-doctor relationship so you feel comfortable and get the most effective care. During your initial visit, Dr. Cohen at Chicago Neurological Services reviews your medical history and symptoms to better understand your specific case and needs.

Then, your specialist develops an IV therapy treatment plan to help reduce symptoms and slow down the progression of your condition. The experienced team offers IV biologics to manage autoimmune conditions, as well as inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease.

What are IV biologics?

Biologics are a form of cutting-edge medical treatment produced from living organisms or contain components of living organisms. They contain proteins that alter the way other proteins or cellular processes work. At Chicago Neurological Services, the team offers IV biologics to reduce inflammation and slow down the progression of a number of chronic conditions, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and psoriasis.

 

What can intravenous infusion therapy be used to treat?

While intravenous infusion therapy can be tailored for nearly any chronic pain or other condition, Dr. Cohen has refined service procedures that include treatment for:

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) with TysabriⓇ, OcrevusⓇ, or LemtradaⓇ
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with RadicavaⓇ to reduce symptoms
  • Myasthenia gravis with recently FDA-approved SolirisⓇ
  • Ankylosing spondylitis with RemicadeⓇ
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) like ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease with Tysabri, Remicade, and EntyvioⓇ
  • Rheumatoid arthritis with RituxanⓇ, Remicade, OrenciaⓇ, or ActemraⓇ
  • Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with ketamine

When other treatment options have failed or provide insufficient relief from symptoms, intravenous infusion therapy is an excellent option. Dr. Cohen is committed to your health and well-being. He considers his expertise in intravenous infusion therapy a potent way to personalize your care and treatment protocol for long-term, sustainable health improvement.
